About Jimmy Evangelatos

Hi, my name is Jimmy. You may like to know I currently own two Hotels, one in Rosarito Beach, Mexico and one named The Palm Springs Hotel, need I say where that is located:)

With my 20+ years as a Hotel Owner / Director and with a Property Management Certification, I understand the needs of people and will do everything in my ability to make sure your stay in our unit will exceed your expectations.

I currently live in Redondo Beach with my wife, Marisa (who helps with guests needs & decorated the unit) and our 3 boys ages 8,10 & 16. We are 3 minutes from property.

I attended UCLA and tried walking on to the football team in 1979 with aspirations of making the traveling square to no avail:(

I also Produced a movie called Local Color, which I am very proud of.

Jimmy Evangelatos purchased this apartment in 1976

Why Jimmy Evangelatos chose Redondo Beach

My dad was a doctor, & back in 1976 he convinced a few friends, two also being doctors (his best friends) to buy this 117 unit oceanfront apartment complex in Redondo Beach.

As I personally have been a Real Estate Broker, Hotelier for the last 20+ years, when my father died in 2007 I was asked by our partners to take over management.

I have since spent millions of dollars doing a complete renovation and this is the first unit to be used as a short term vacation rental.

What makes this apartment unique

This particular unit has the 2nd largest balcony in the complex. I completely gutted the unit from floor to ceiling and everything is brand-new as of Feb 2015. The views from the balcony are spectacular and you can hear the ocean waves crashing on the beach. The unit is on the North side of building, and the view is more inviting at night as you see not just the ocean but the lights of the pier and activity of the boardwalk. It is perfect for a couple or family with a child.

Best vacation in 10 years

  • 5 of 5

We don't get out a ton but when we do we appreciate a clean, convenient, well appointed place to sleep that is central to the adventures nearby. This unit was all of that and more. We traveled up and down the coast, into LA, up to Universal Studios and more, but couldn't wait to get back to our oasis. The owner was so accommodating. The place was absolutely perfect; a bit compact but adequate and had a lovely deck looking over the pristine beach and lively pier. It had all the essentials including covered secure parking. The fold out single bed was incredibly comfortable, as were the deck loungers where I fell asleep gazing at the moon over the Pacific. We would highly recommend this place. You will not be disappointing.

Delightful Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife, teenaged daughter, and I stayed for a week in August 2016. The view from the place we rented last year through VRBO was only possible if you hung off the balcony. With this place, what you see in the photos is what you get, only better!

All the surprises were delightful ones, like everything you could need, and more, already there right down to dental floss. The big stuff, like the location, the decor, the comfortable bed and the pull out sofa, the cleanliness, the view (and what a view!), and the beautiful sound of the surf day and night was all perfect. The little things, like the French press, a cupboard full of spices and seasonings, coffee, some condiments in the fridge, and a full complement of toiletries just made it that much better. Normally, they only supply two beach chairs with the apartment. When Jimmy and Marissa found out that our daughter would be with us, he brought over a third beach chair and a boogie board before we arrived. He even went to the trouble of pulling out the sofa bed and putting the bedding on. Nice touch! Jimmy and Marissa clearly understand that details count and have created a place with the vibe of a boutique hotel.

The Redondo Pier is an easy walk from the apartment and don't miss the Farmer's Market on Thursdays! Watching the sunsets from the balcony was sublime. We put over 600 miles on our rental car in the week we were there and the apartment was a welcome respite from the crazy L.A. traffic.

In summary, this is a fantastic place and Jimmy and Marissa are great hosts. I'd recommend this place to my best friends without hesitation.

The best girls trip we've been on!

  • 5 of 5

A few girls and I stayed in the condo and it was by far the best girls trip we've been on! The condo was immaculate and the owners have thought of every single detail! They were so friendly to deal with and we felt very at home!

It's perfect for a girls trip, a family trip with kids, or a couples romantic getaway! Everything you could want is within walking distance and the view from the patio is breathtaking. I was torn between not wanting to leave the condo and experiencing all there was to do right out our door!

Exceptional apartment with lovely view

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated and the owner had thought of everything we might need. It is right on Redondo beach, with a great view of the water, the sunset, a pretty park and interesting pier. The underground parking garage is another plus. It was a pleasant walk on the esplanade to reach nice shops and a variety of good restaurants. We were able to bike on the beach path to Hermosa and Manhattan beaches, too.

The kitchen is modern and well equipped. The king bed was very comfortable. When our daughter visited, she was able to sleep on the futon in the living room which worked out well. The owner was charming, and readily available for any issues that came up. In fact, when I called to say I had left one of my bags behind by mistake, he drove many miles to give it to my daughter. Overall, an excellent experience.

Location, Location, Location with all the amenities you need !!!

  • 5 of 5

Our 16 night stay was most enjoyable, comfortable and very clean. The owners thought of every need. We will return. You will appreciate the Farmer's Market every Thursday just steps from your door. Walking paths below along the ocean provide great exercise and beautiful opportunities to enjoy the sunrise, sunset and the beauty of the ocean. Surfers, whales, etc. Experience the local culture visiting the many shops and restaurants on Redondo Beach Pier just a few steps away. The patio expands the living area when the two large sliding doors are opened to take in the gorgeous weather, relax to the sounds of the ocean, or grill a great meal with items purchased from the Farmer's Market. Our hosts, Jimmy and Marisa, could not be more attentive and responsive to ensure our stay was exceptional. They made us feel welcome beginning with our early search for an extended stay location and throughout. As a result of the overall experience this is our "go to" home away from home. We highly recommend it and have already spread the word of this gem to family and friends.
